, and government accountants now list climate change as a threat to our fiscal stability. now, today, as we enter the passover and easter season and as catholics the world over celebrate the selection of a new pope, we turn to voices of faith. they, too, call upon us. they call upon us to heed the moral imperatives of protecting creation and seeking justice for all people. they call upon us to reflect on our faith, on our relationship to our world and each other and on our responsibility to future generations. and they call upon us as president obama reminded us in his inaugural address to preserve our planet commanded to our care by god. i lay no claim to religious authority, but i must believe this -- something that harms others, something that disturbs god's creation, something that stands on lies and greed, protecting that must not be consistent with god's will. in his 2010 world day of peace message entitled "if you want to cultivate peace, protect creation," pope benedict xvi called upon the faithful, and i quote -- "to protect the environment and to safeguard natural resources and the clim
do not know of a family, i do not know of other units of government that as they're trying to wrestle with this question confine themselves to only looking at one side of the balance sheet. but that's what the house budget does. you know, i was thinking about this approach and this question about deficits not long ago, and it struck me that when i look at myself in a mirror, madam president, i always wish that i was thinner. i always wish i was thinner. but i've never once looked in a mirror and wished i was weaker. an all-cuts approach is like looking in a mirror and wishing your weaker because an all-cuts approach placks yo makes you wen education, weaker in defense, by laying people off in jobs, it makes you weaker because your unemployment rate is higher. it is like looking in the mirror and wishing your weaker. we have to be stronger. can we make cuts? sure we can and we have and we'll make more. but we ought to be focused on being stronger, about growing the economy and growing jobs. and that's why the approach that the senate takes is the right approach. because by utilizing re

, you know, the federal government and the banks don't want you to save money, because the banks can get their money from the fed for 0% so why would they let people save money. they would dread you put the money in the stock market and take a chance you're going to gain or lose. it's against a person wanting to save money. host: when did you start saving? caller: i'd say about 20 years before i retired. host: and you retired at what age? caller: 59. old enough to start drawing my 401-k. host: so the company you work for provided a 401-k? that's when you started investing? caller: yes, but you know they didn't match anything. what i put in there was my money but we had profit sharing. but they never matched what i put in. it was my money. host: do you think that -- did you ever use a financial advisor? caller: no. i got my money in chase, managed accounts, they managed my money. before it was through fidelity, and i could manipulate it myself, and that's when i lost half my money, because i didn't move it fast enough, and i took a big hit. host: so you didn't take it out of riskiers a cr

. but in all seriousness let's agree that the challenges in government that will always exist seem to be more difficult to surmount today than they were a decade ago and i'm wondering if you can talk about what has change add whand can reverse those trend. >> that is my story and i'm sticking to it that things were perfect. there were a lot of things. we dealt with a series of crisis. we had an impeachment crisis. we had a 9/11 crisis. we had an an thrax attack in my office. when you have crisis like that it brings people together. i think partly it was the circumstances and the environment we had to confront. devissive had very times. the schedule has changed a lot. we would work longer weeks and people were there for a longer period of time. the venues for communication were much more readily at hand. we had -- we used to have two lunch tables that are just for senators and you'd is it family style and people would have lunch together. and for whatever reason that lunchroom was closed. we used to have social events where we get together and one was around our spouses and we'd salute or spo
they are eating a larger portion of americans' paychecks and the government's budget. if we continue on our current path, the medicare trust fund will be insolvent by 2024. and medicare and medicaid will grow from 24% of the federal budget to almost 30%, crowding out other needed investments. we have to reduce health care costs in both the private sector and public sector in order to ensure america remains competitive in a global market, but there is a right way to reform our health care system and there is a wrong way. with all due respect, mr. ryan's path is the wrong way. mr. ryan's plan for medicare and medicaid misses the point. his solution simply shifts the costs from government to patients rather than reducing health care costs. under the ryan budget, seniors would pay as much as $1,200 more each year by 2030 and $6,000 more by 2050. for over half of medicare beneficiaries with incomes less than $21,000, a $1,200 increase is a huge piece of their budget. he also proposes block granting medicaid, which would cut medicaid funding by approximately $700 billion over the next decade and
taxes taken out of the pockets of hardworking american families, more government spending which adds to the trillions of dollars in debt that will be handed down to the next generation. our friends on the other side of the aisle talk about a balanced approach, but they refuse to even balance their own budget. our vision calls for a stop to washington's failed policies and reckless spending. it says american families and small businesses understand you can't spend more than you take in. you need to balance your budget, and it's time for washington to do the same. this vision seeks to protect the things that we value most, to keep the promises we made to our seniors, to our veterans. i'm the son of a u.s. marine. while at the same time allowing us to leave a better future for our kids and our grandkids, that's the vision i want to work toward and that's why i'm proud to support the house budget committee's proposal which we'll be voting on later this week. this isn't about passing a budget for one year, just one time. this is about creating lasting solutions that help grow our economy

responsibility for security to the afghan government. chief washington correspondent james rosen joins me live now. james, bring us up to date. >> reporter: good morning. every leader between u.s. leaders and hamid karzai seems to be fraught with tension and this one is no different. aides say secretary kerry's talks will not dwell on the karzai's allegations that the u.s. and taliban are conspiring to weaken the afghan nation. rather they will discuss security concerns as the u.s. and nato mission in afghanistan winds down over the next 29 months and the need for transparency and fairness in the upcoming elections. for the first time in 12 years hamid karzai will not appear on the ballot. over the weekend jon mentioned secretary kerry met with another leader that. iraqi's leader, nouriel malaki. he wants iran to stop using iraqi airspace to deliver foreign fighters to the fighters and the regime in damascus. >> may made it clear members of congress and people in america are increasingly watching what iraq is doing and wondering how it is that a partner in the efforts for democracy and a partn
a high public opinion approval rating in israel will make the prime minister and the israely government more carol abo-- mor about standing up to him. >> i want to continue this idea that they will not be able to discuss anything. am i dreaming, aren't they going to talk about the iran threat and syria and the massive problems there and egypt. the region in some sense is unraveling, dan, president obama knows that. prime minister netanyahu knows that. cou so, can they get manage out of this? >> there's a lot to talk b but a lot of it is relationship repair. the first term the president, to borrow his phrase, he pursued a strategy in the middle east in which he wanted distance. he said that his u.s. relationship was perceived to close to the prime minister of israel. and so they needed to create space. here he is four years later, nothing to show for it, there's trust issues between the president and the palestinian leaders, so he is trying something different. coming to israel. bear hugging them and sending a message that they are close. as it relates to specifics, absolutely they will
branches of the arizona state government in the preceding years and of course, i have left the track record and i think the president had sent people out to uncover the press coverage of anything i was involved with and to look at papers in connection with a record. i guess they had not uncovered anything to looks scary so he decided to do that. i was at home the day they've wanted to come now to talk to me. my husband and i had built a sun-dried adobe house in the phoenix area 1957. that was a challenge you could buy the other kind but in this country today it is very hard to buy a sun-dried adobe bricks that somebody has made then dried and in a frame in the sun and that is what we've wanted to use. i ate them and in scottsdale to build some houses like that and he could tell us how to get sun-dried adobe so we followed his advice and found a starving young architect who was willing to designed a house so we got it built and i loved it. it was so fun until you see it and touch it you probably cannot appreciate why i liked it so much but it looks good, it feels good good, and it is wonderf
president, to keep this government open. now, they say they want to keep the government open. they don't want a shutdown. so why not get that vote done with? senator mikulski has led in a beautiful way with senator shelby -- a very bipartisan fashion. let's vote on that bill, keep the government open, as senator mikulski said, "show the country we can work together," and get to the one thing the republicans have been saying, not for months but for years, that the democrats have not done a budget. now, the truth is, instead of doing a budget, we did the budget control act. so of course we distinguis did . as a matter of fact, the budget control act was actually, in many ways, more specific than a budget. but set that aside, they went out on the campaign trail, they attacked democrats, "where's your budget? where's your budget?" well, guess what? under the able leadership of my friend from washington, senator murray, there is a budget, and it is well-done. and it has strong deficit reduction and strong investments. it's balanced in a way that the ryan plan is not. it saves medicare where
are faced with a government reaching into their personal bank accounts to pay its bills. this is not like a tax. it's a smash and grab. the government runs the banks, so when they're failing and need money, they could keep the deposits that the citizens have inside their accounts. cyprus needs to come up with 7 1/2 billion dollars on its on in order to get the european unions to loan it the rest of the money to keep the country running. it's like matching funds in a highway and in belgium holding last minute talks with european leaders. they better talk quickly because the european bank has been giving emergency cash to cyprus to keep the banks there afloat. that cash stops tomorrow if there's no deal in the works. some pictures now from earlier. citizens filling the streets in panics and their businesses hurting from no cash flow and the atm's shut down. and they're worried the government will take their money. greg palkot is in cyprus and brenda buttner in the studio. let's go to graeg. what's the latest for cyprus. >> reporter: harris, it looks like it's going to be an all-nighter. an
's a vision of the country where the government is indifferent to the suffering of many while only paying attention to the demands of a few. then there is the other plan that is before us, the democratic plan. with a balanced set of priorities, a better vision for the future, found in the budget offered by house budget committee ranking member chris van hollen. it takes a balanced approach with targeted spending and new revenues. it would cut waste, add jobs and spur economic growth of the economy. it would reduce the deficit by an additional $1.8 trillion without jeopardizing the recovery or harming the middle class. it includes $1.2 trillion in new revenue obtained not by tax increases but by closing loopholes and eliminating wasteful spending that benefits the wealthiest americans and the largest corporations. it eliminates $4 billion in annual tax breaks to the oil and gas industry, an industry that is making profits. they don't need a tax break. in fact, they're making enormous profits. so, why does the ryan budget give them a government subsidy? the democratic plan invests in infras
their taxes as well. we're talking about the thousands of government federal employees dodging the i.r.s. should they be fired? we've got an update on that this morning. >>brian: you think a woman's cheating husband would get the message. after she uses a billboard for revenge. but the best part is how she paid for it. look at that. "fox & friends" starts right gnaw. >>steve: welcome to march madness live here on the "fox & friends" set. >>alisyn: good to be with you all. >>steve: the president is out of the country, 50-hour sprint in israel. we have a situation where a lot of you are saying it is so cold here, i can't wait for vacation. we have a great segment in about 20 minutes. we have the founders and c.e.o. of 14 sandals, three beaches. wouldn't they like to see alisoe just as a token. we might have a beaches bureau. >>alisyn: let's do it. i volunteer. let's talk about the middle east. the president is making his first trip to israel since becoming president and there's a lot of tension, including this attack with rockets fired across the border. >>steve: indeed. somewhere in g

with the government and a very war hawkish administration seemed to be anti-american. so in that environment, the voices that were speaking out against this war, but in that environment, those voices could be muffled and people were being painted as being anti-american because they were pro peace. >> right. mrs. walsh, we saw what donald rumsfeld said on twitter. we saw dick cheney say he would do it all over again and not acknowledge any mistakes. >> the main fault -- i don't spend a lot of time thinking about my faults i guess would be the answer. >> no kind of political introspection there. but will history let these men off the hook for what they did? >> no, they're going down in history for a horrible, terrible war. i was going to say a lapse of judgment, but it was not a lapse of judgment. it was a deliberate act. they cooked the evidence. they brow beat people. they would karl rove as their political hench men. the vote was scheduled on the eve of the elections deliberately. i don't want to let democrats off the hook. 29 senate democrats voted to authorize the use of force. some apolo
's employees will be gone. where the red assets are going to the bank of cyprus. the government spending cuts will have to come along with tax increases. this deal still hurts. >> i do not think there is any denying that the cyprus people will have to go through tough times and will suffer the consequences. we had to adjust over relatively a short period of time. rich: now the question is what does this mean for the rest of the euro zone? this, the bailout should be a template for the rest of europe and banks should be reduced. back to you. connell: rich edson lives in cyprus. trading halted in some of those italian banking stocks also added the comments in terms of a template. time to bring in axel merck. your thoughts? >> good morning. when someone screams fire, you do not want to shut the accident. halting stocks, i do not think, is helpful at all. i think it is rather responsible. the question is what will happen. obviously, investors are taking action. connell: you just look at the big board here in the united states and the green at the beginning of the day has now turned red. european
than the government takes in. continue os soned -- to spend more money than washington takes in, and the people of this great country understand we can't continue going down this road over and over and over. a couple of points that mr. scott made regarding the republican budget which is the budget that is the base budget here that we're bringing to the floor that in fact does get to balance in a responsible way. it saves an strengthens and secures medicare as opposed to the misinformation that was provided by the other side. it makes certain that states have the kind of flexibility so they're able to provide the highest quality of health care to their medicaid population. it doesn't, as a matter of fact, address in a specific way the issue of social security because it provides for a reserve fund so that's able to be addressed in a more specific way through the committee structure which is also the important thing to recognize about the issue of tacks. our friends on the other side are specific about what they accuse us of regarding tax bus as you know, mr. chairman, it's the wa
kids say i want to be a doctor. all of it is all of the government involvement that thee they feel. >> clayton: insurance exchanges we have been hearing so much about. these need to be in place. they are not yet set up. obama care rolling out over the last few years. not all of its arms have yet taken hold. insurance exexchange a key component of the affordable care act which would basically give you the idea, you know, eligible folks could then get government subsidies in return for some of these services. henry chow has come out this week basically saying all of these set up, all of the web site stuff that we were working on to build this thing has not come together yet. he says the time for debating about the size of the text on the screen or the color or is any world class user experience, that's what we used to talk about when we were talking about this. he says two years ago. now let's just make sure it's not a third world experience. >> so basically they are saying let's do better than sim back zimbabwe. is that the experience we are trying to exceed? >> clayton: this is wha
. there is no precedent for something off that ticket and thrust into governing responsibility. the balance he has to strike is doing his demanding day job and maintaining his options in the event he wants to run for president and a difficult balance to strike. >> you know him well. do you sense he aspires to more nationally? did he get a taste for president politics the last time around? >> i don't want to speak for him but i think he continues to have a taste and ambition to have a big impact on some of these issues he cares about nationally. he's a number of ways he can do it punish. mark leibovich wrote that article. paul ryan can't lose. meaning he could run for president if he stays in congress, he'll be chairman of ways and means committee and some talk about him playing a more prominent role in leadership so he has to decide where he can make his mark. no one i believe has done more to advance the conservative policy agenda in terms of where he has moved through republican congress the last for a years. >> mark, he's a young man, in his early 40s. he has a lot of politics ahead of him. wha

. guest: the federal government provided for electrification to rural areas because it was deemed a necessity. just like water service was built out and provided to rural areas, electricity was provided, and now communications services that serve the public interest. that is the mandate they wrote into law to guide the fcc. is it in the public interest for people in rural areas to hospital, their local government services, family members, and others? the fcc is under both republican and democratic chairman have said yes, it is. host: on twitter -- are there steps you can give about where this program is most use? and the roleline internet connections? on the fcc website, the their reports on all these programs a go into great detail about where they're provided, how much, and where. universalder the service administrative company and their required to disclose where and who gets the service. that is how they have found out through these reforms, that there were a number people getting the service who were not qualified. as withgo to fcc.ogv, oft things, and the pages material and
